Kelly Blue Book on a `98 S.E. shows $4,070 trade in value. (What a dealer would allow on trade for one of his bikes.) The same dealer should ask $6,435 when he goes to sell it according to Kelly Blue Book.I like to ask when the last time clutch and brake fluids were changed. Usually get a blank stare at that question. Lets me know how the bike was maintained. Probably should have at least 2nd set of cam belts by now. How does it idle, and run? My `98 S.E.doesn`t have the hidden seat cover. Never did. That was just on earlier S.E.s I have replaced the windshield with a Memphis shade windscreen, no winsheild vent on mine either. For sure should have the adjustable rear floorboards, and toe warmer to be a S.E.

the toe warmer vents are a joke

Toe warmers they are not. However....after driving long enough for the bike to warm up on a cooler/cold day (50-60degrees), you can open it up and immediately notice the space where your legs are at gets warmer by a nice amount. I can drop my hand from the bar and hang it straight down to warm it up if I don't have my gloves on while riding. That space ends up working kinda like a wind door. Takes a little bit for the warming effect to go away when you close it. Granted, on a REALLY cold day, I wouldn't have gloves off to find out if it is still effective enough.


Also, I have noticed that when the upper vent on the sides are closed, cold air comes through the lower one. Open up the top one, and warm air comes out of the lower one. Kinda strange to me.

On my SE there are little levers on the outside of the lower vents. Slide those levers down and you change the air source for the lower vents from direct outside air to air that has been heated by the engine. Close the upper vents and there is some difference on the heat on your shins.

The lower foot warmers do help some but for real heat buy a set of foot wings. They reduce the air flow over your feet and what air you do get they pull across the exhaust manifolds.
